, tunisia, bangladesh and, of course, the attack on a u.s. consulate in libya that left four americans, including the u.s. ambassador, dead on the 11-year anniversary of 9/11. that attack first presumed to be linked somehow to a controversial film made by a private citizen in america that depicts the prophet muhammad in a negative light, but now authorities are investigating, and there are reports that this was a preplanned terrorist attack that was intended all along to coincide with september 11th. and this is just some of the disturbing video that's come into the fox newsroom from teams around the globe. these scenes are from egypt earlier today. this is where the protest movement first began, again, query what the protest is about. we were told in egypt it did have to do with the film, but it clearly has gone way beyond that in many cities. angry mobs clashing with police for a third straight day, setting fires in the streets. in libya, an investigation underway on the deadly assault on a u.s. post in benghazi. this was the scene yesterday after what is now being called a coordinat

counterclaim presence in libya, that he was on an al qaeda hit list. in addition, our source tells us he e-mailed a journalist in the wake of a bombing near a consulate in june. he wrote, and i quote, maybe you head east to benghazi to check out the situation, which appears to be heating up. we don't know why, given all that ambassador stevens, why he traveled with such an apparently light security detail. did he want it that way? or did his warnings go unhead heeded, and did he and his people die because of it? we don't know. senator john mccain has criticized some of the steps taken since gadhafi has been outed. and he has been critical of what happened to ambassador stevens and the three others. i spoke to senator mccain today. senator mccain, a source told us in the months before ambassador steven's death, he was worried about the never-ending security threats in benghazi and the rise in islamic extremism and growing al qaeda presence and also immensed being on an al qaeda hit list. in june, he wrote in an e-mail to a journalist and i quote, maybe you should head east to benghazi to ch
on the u.s. embassy in benches gazy and libya. originally the administration said it was part of the original protest but now it looks like it may not be the case. 9:35 in the evening the attacks began. it turns out there were no protests going on at all. and as it turns out, we are also learning the libyan president may be correct in how it went down. it happened in 9/11. also the fact that he says they were able to attack a safe house in addition to the compound building and in addition he points to the fact there was a level of coordination between the attackers and this was a sustained, militant operation, not simply a protest that got out of control. in beirut, they took to the street and demanded more protests as a result of this anti-muslim movie that came out. this entire crowd chanting back "death to america." today i sat down with the organizer of the protester here in cairo. he's the brother of the leader of al-qaeda. what is so amazing he said he hasn't even watched it, let alone knowing all the things that are in it. it's the extremists in lebanon, which is a very
to the defense. that was refuted by the nid. >> eric: but the embassy in libya put out statements prior to the attack. the statements were put out and the attacks would end up in the as a result of four people killed. and there was a knowledge in advance of the protest and you have to wonder, hillary clinton came on september 12th and september 13th, denouncing the attacks and what not. why was she on twice saying the same thing. maybe we had advance knowledge of the protest and attacks. >> gretchen: it appears that the incidents are different. in the seps that libya appears to be a coordinated attack on september 11th and the other uprisings in egypt and tunisia and yemen they are not necessarily related to september 11th or do we know yet? it is an easy excuse to say it is to do with the ridiculous movie or is it something else? are they related or different. >> brian: rioters show up protest in our consolate are 50 commandos. that is the first wave and another 50 . they were surprised they didn't get resistance someone inside tipped them off to a safe house through the navy seals and
a new friend. look at libya. you now have hacks covering for obama coming out gainst american values. take a look at slate. where one guy faults the united states for the silly first amendment. it's not them. it's us. i say we are turning in to big brother, but that's racist. >> eric: oh! >> bob: there's a start right there. >> greg: thank you. i am on muscle relaxants, no wonder what i did there. >> kimberly: no wonder you're so friendly. >> greg: i'm friendly all the time. you just ignore me. you talk about the polls. i want to talk about rush limbaugh. he's talking about how the polls reflect the mind set or ideology of democrats, not america as whole. take it from there. >> the purpose of the people right now, most of them doing the polls, they're trying to make news, not reflect it. advancing an agenda. they all have different jobs. the polls are the replacement refs. they watch and they see certain things and don't see other things. they don't call certain things. other things go by. it has to be some truth to that, right? >> bob: no. they're not all republicans or democrats. r
is deteriorating by the hour. violent anti-american riots are growing now. what started in egypt and libya now spread to yemen, tunisia, iraq, elsewhere. at this hour, two navy destroy years plus a team of marines are scrambling in the persian gulf. go live to fox news foreign correspondent leland vittert on the ground in cairo. put a picture -- >> reporter: eric, this i belowe is a large street battle going back and forth between the egyptian police and riots in egypt as they try to storm the u.s. embassy, the egyptian police now 48 hours after the rioters got inside the compound are able to push these people back using a combination of tear gas, and rubber bullets that is now continuing well in the night here. 11:00 p.m. in cairo. it's still going strong. ricochets of the rubber bullets is piercing the air here in cairo. the difference, though, the equipages police defending the embassy compound and keeping the rioters out. they're a combination of heavily anti-american and angry over the anti-prophet muhammad movie. a number of them chanting "with our blood, our soul we defend you, o, proph
and say 48 hours for you to condemn the attacks. i've had it. meet with libya and get an update. do what romney can't do. be president. then let everybody report what happened behind closed doors and make sure the message is strong. if you were in charge, that would not happen. they would not go on the view. >> bob: if i was in charge i wouldn't wear a pink tie. >> brian: you are so jealous. >> bob: say one thing if i could about the netanyahu thing. all the rest of this, i agree. down on the vegas trip, a bad idea. netanyahu wants the meeting because he wants to get a public line in the sand drawn. the red line he is talking about. netanyahu is setting obama up. glad obama is not meeting with him. do you think they're so stupid not have a meeting with netanyahu if they thought they'd make progress? netanyahu wants this meeting for his own politics. i don't think you should give him that. >> dana: president obama should want it for his politics. >> bob: wrong. >> eric: you can still meet with president obama and not draw a red line. >> bob: they meet on the phone, right? >> dana: only af
in egypt and what happened in libya was not some spontaneous reak to a stupid 13-minute video on youtube. richard nixon was forced out of office because he lied. because he covered some stuff up. i will be blunt and tell you this. nobody died in watergate. we have people dead because of this and there are questions to be answered. >> andrea: it's not just republicans concerned about this. just yesterday, senate democrats also started demanding answers from the administration. greg, we're 17 days out since we learned this was a terror attack. even leon panetta said this was a terror attack. but nothing from the commander-in-chief. shouldn't he have been honest the first place? >> greg: this is confusing to me. the response is let's coordinate it, with an engineering major. if he knew it was terror, they're now say it's terror, why did you go to vegas on day one? was al-qaeda playing craps at mgm grand? catching a show at the renetian? possibly carrot top? none of them were on message. the big coup here was imprinting the idea that the video was responsible in the media and the public.
in libya. each day that goes by it gets worse and worse for the administration. now to refresh your memory, here is what ambassador susan rice said on september 16. remember, u.s. intelligence officials have told fox news they knew on september 12 it was a terror attack. >> this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo. as a consequence of the video. >> andrea: why would the administration try to sell us that story? >> so why did they deceive in it's obvious. the attack took place five days after the democrats spent a week in charlotte, out thing, spiking the football on bin laden. >> the reason we call it benghazi-gate it contains the grim prospect that the administration knew or should have known. this is the one cancer on the presidency. dare i say that. >> we have been lied to. we flat out have been lied to. everybody with two eyes and i.q. above plant life understands that what happened in egypt and what happened in libya was not some spontaneous reak to a stupid 13-minute video on youtube
happened in libya, where our u.s. ambassador was killed. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which worries me more, the idea that the intelligence system took weeks to figure out the obvious-- although we are told in fact they had information the day before the attack because the video that went out from al qaeda asking that the ambassador-- somebody be killed on 9/11 was a day earlier. so i don't know whet
americans in benghazi, libya. he wasn't a filmmaker. al-qaeda terrorist with ties to blood bloo bin laden held in. sufyan bin qumu. see this no, spontaneous reaction. but for some reason, the obama administration is linking the violence to a movie. >> and as i have said, the video that sparked the protest is disgusting and reprehensible. eric: that was today. here is white house spokesman jay carney yesterday. listen. >> based on what we know now, and knew at the time, we have no evidence of preplanned, or premeditated attack. >> eric: jay carney today says it's self-evident it was terrorism. so americans deserve some answers. why won't this president call a terrorist a terrorist? hillary clinton, madam secretary, smart lady, do you really think it was all about a movie? jay carney, c'mon, you know better than what you have been saying. ambassador rice, please stop insulting our intelligence. this is a coverup of the highest levels of the united states government. don't they realize this just emboldens al-qaeda? andrea, the issue here is what is the perception in the muslim world? what is
, the world is crumbling. american diplomats dragged through the street of libya. pakistani libya putting bounties on american citizens' heads. here at home, the american economy is in shambling. obamanomics turned it to food stamp obama nation. war on jobs is crushing the middle class. as american cities declare bankruptcy for the first time ever. so, go ahead with "the view." go ahead with "letterman show." the clooney dinners. i understand you're eye candy. i understand you have your priorities. unfortunately, your priorities don't line up with ours. >> bob: that was very depressing. >> eric: it is depressing. >> bob: okay. >> eric: it is depressing. the man has time for the view and letterman but can't meet with netanyahu or tackle the major issues going on in america: jobs. >> bob: i would venture to say most presidents up for re-election, general assembly of the u.n. in september of election year don't have a lot of bilateral meetings -- >> dana: if you're going to say that, why don't you check it out first. we have polls who do things like that all day. >> bob: i checked in with --
